David Tennant Covers The Proclaimers For Children In Need’s Got It Covered Album

Following an exclusive announcement on The Zoe Ball Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 this morning, BBC One and BBC Children in Need have today confirmed the hotly anticipated Children in Need: Got It Covered album will be released on Friday 1 November in conjunction with Silva Screen Records.
The album, in aid of BBC Children in Need, is an exciting new venture for the charity this year and features a glittering line-up of some of the UK’s most critically-acclaimed actors from stage and screen who have banded together to help make a positive difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people throughout the UK.
A special 90-minute programme showcasing the entire recording process will be broadcast on BBC One ahead of the annual BBC Children in Need Appeal show later this year, featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes action, special guest appearances and much more.
Full album track list is as follows:
David Tennant has covered Sunshine on Leith by The Proclaimers
Helena Bonham Carter CBE has covered Both Sides Now by Joni Mitchell
Jim Broadbent has covered Blue Moon by Rogers and Hart
Olivia Colman CBE has covered Glory Box by Portishead
Shaun Dooley has covered Never Grow Up by Taylor Swift
Luke Evans has covered Smile by Charlie Chaplin
Suranne Jones has covered Symphony by Clean Bandit
Adrian Lester OBE has covered I Wish by Stevie Wonder
Himesh Patel has covered All These Things That I’ve Done by The Killers
Jodie Whittaker has covered Yellow by Coldplay
Plus a special group cover of It Must Be Love by Labi Siffre
The album is now available for pre-order on the BBC Children in Need website.
Each track was carefully crafted and recorded at the legendary recording studios, Abbey Road and Rak Studios in London, whilst the actors received expert guidance and mentoring from Brit and Mercury award-winning record producers and songwriters, Guy Chambers and Jonathan Quarmby. With over 20 years of industry experience, veteran vocal coach Mark De-Lisser also came on board to help the actors produce their tracks.
Children in Need: Got It Covered is a co-production by BBC Studios and 20four7films. It has been commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director, BBC Content and Kate Phillips, Controller, Entertainment Commissioning. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Rachel Ashdown. The executive producers are Mel Balac, Creative Director at BBC Studios, and Polly Dooley, Executive Producer at 20four7films, and the director is Peter Coventry.
BBC Children in Need relies on the generosity and creativity of the thousands of supporters and fundraisers who raise millions of pounds for the charity every year. To date, the UK public has raised over £1 billion for children and young people facing disadvantage across the UK.
All profits will go to BBC Children in Need, with a minimum of £1.50 per album (charity number 802052 in England & Wales and SC039557 in Scotland).
